STANTON, N.D. (AP) - The Mercer County Commission has given permission to owner of empty oil patch man camp units to bring them to a location between Hazen and Beulah to house workers building a urea fertilizer plant

The Bismarck Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1ZcuGPN ) reports that one of the main topics of concern was the extent of boring that needs to be done be to ensure there are no hidden underground mine tunnels. The area is riddled with early 20th century underground mine works near where the state Public Service Commission has injected grout to stabilize the property.

Commissioners on Wednesday upheld the zoning board’s recommendation that the location be bored to the PSC’s recommendation. Zoning member Dwight Berger says the abandoned mine program manager recommends 50 bore holes as deep as 120 feet.
